Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Re: My current position on CF WoDs

Re: 28 Count Routine

Re: Affiliates who have failed?

I'm surprised noone else has said anything concerning "stealing" clients from corporate gyms. I want to offer some food for thought for anyone considering this tactic.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Rebecca,

When I am running (which is only for the WODs - I am not much of a runner either), I try to breathe in and out for the same amount of time. I try to drag out those breaths for as many...

Re: MBTI Test Results of Crossfitters

Melissa,

You sound a LOT like me. I'm an INTP, too.

I'm curious - did you grow up with mostly brothers? I have 6 older brothers and no sisters. I think that explains a lot of my...

Re: Marine Corps MOSs

I work in an educational office on a Navy base. I have seen more than a few enlisted individuals pursue a master's degree on the Navy's dime. To be honest, many of them are working on...

Re: Classic Rip (collection of quotes, many hilarious, many NOT w/f/s)

I saw Coach Rippetoe yesterday in FL, and he mentioned that the post yesterday (mentioned by Michael) was one of the stupidest he had seen.

Re: Question about a Knee Problem

Dave,

If his injury is old, he should be able to do most things in CrossFit. I tore the ACL in my left knee in 1996. My insurance has denied me surgery, so I have to work around the knee. I have...

Re: Really like coffee, so someone talk me out of this idea

Jay,

I would nix complicated food at least to start. Basic grab-n-go food if anything. I don't remember seeing much in the way of food offered at any of the drive-thru coffee shacks. That leads...

Re: Commercial gyms amaze me

Floorwipers are actually a pretty decent ab exercise. Not that easy if you do them correctly.

I have to add another voice of agreement to Darrell's advice. If you want to appreciate Opera, see it live. I never "got" it until I did. Then, I fell in love with it.
